Remembering Tony Rutter

Tony Rutter, a multiple British champion and father of Michael, has today (Tuesday) sadly passed away at the age of 78.

Tony Rutter won two British Championship titles during his impressive career on both the world and domestic stage, claiming four consecutive Formula Two World Championships from 1981 to 1984.

His racing success also extended to road racing, where he became a seven-time Isle of Man TT race winner between 1973 and 1985.

Michael released the following:

"It is with sadness that after a period of poor health, dad passed away earlier today. I was with him when he died at about 2am last night and he was very peaceful.

“It makes me smile how dad lived his life exactly how he wanted to and how he got away with so much!

“He will probably be best remembered for winning the world TT-F2 championship four times on a Ducati, as well as seven Isle of Man TT wins, nine North West 200 wins, and two British championship titles during his 22-year career.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to his carers for taking such good care of him and all his fans and supporters".

Tony Rutter 24/9/41 – 24/3/20
